Getting High Quality B2B Leads On LinkedIn
by Roger On September 22, 2016

Is your LinkedIn profile collecting digital dust? The platform is consistently ranked #1 in the arena of acquiring highly-targeted B2B leads, so it’s time to bust out the dustpan and start making some moves. I’m going to give you 4 amazing tips on utilizing LinkedIn to generate leads, then it’s up to you to take the action.

Most LinkedIn Profiles Suck. Yours Shouldn’t.

I’d wager that you’ve put a lot of time and money into creating the brand for your company and getting a unique site that tells your story and demonstrates some of your personality. Your LinkedIn profile needs to contain the same elements. We’re limited to the ways we can be creative with our profiles, as we can’t add custom HTML to make things flashy, but we have opportunities at our fingertips to make our profiles stand out from the other 80 million in the network. Like a resume, you don’t want to go overboard in the creative department (depending on the industry you’re in), but you also don’t want to look like the generic template format. One way to accomplish this is adding an introduction video that automatically plays when people visit your profile. Utilize this feature to either give your visitor your elevator pitch, or by having one of your clients give a great testimony to your company.

Answer Questions In Linkedin Answers

Talk about an extremely useful but highly-ignored tool on LinkedIn. LinkedIn Answers is a section where people who want to ask questions about their industry go to get advice. And who’s going to come to rescue? You are. Because you’re an industry professional that provides value to the market. It is not uncommon to see professionals use this methodology to generate over $80,000 in new projects in the course of a year. Just by adding value to the market, you’re growing your books.

Create an Event on LinkedIn

Digital meet-and-greets are amazing and a lot of professionals are starting to solely to business online. However, nothing beats a good ol’ physical handshake. Combine digital and analog meetings and you’re going to create a monster network. Creating events on LinkedIn is one major move that, in my opinion, doesn’t get utilized often enough. Create a business networking event in your city and use Events application to promote it. Look into group owners in different industries that have a large following and consider having them partner with you and assist in promoting the event. Being the owner or host of these events gives you more leverage and opportunities to meet others than you would have by just simply attending the event. Make sure you’re shaking hands, exchanging cards, and telling them you’ll follow up with them on LinkedIn the following day. Take these tips on increasing your LinkedIn leads and start implementing them today. With 20 minutes a day every day for the next 2 weeks, you’ll see an exceptional spike in your inbound leads.

Improve Your Life With Food
by On September 2, 2016

Alright. I know that I just posted an article all about food last week, but it’s food. C’mon, I can’t get enough of it! In the spirit of all things edible, with big thanks to Mr. Benjamin P. Hardy over at Medium, here are 3 improvements to your diet that have the power to radically affect your life.

Consume 30g of Protein 30 Minutes after You Wake

According to the professor emeritus of nutrition over at the University of Illinois, Donald Layman; consuming at least 30 grams of protein after waking up is the best way to keep you fuller, longer. Tim Ferriss also recommends this same dietary tip in his book, The 4-Hour Body.

According to Tim, his father followed this advice and lost a whopping 19 pounds in one month!

Protein-rich foods keep you full longer than other foods because they stay in your stomach longer. They’re also able to keep your blood-sugar levels steady, which prevents hunger spikes.

So here’s what you can eat:

  • Two or three whole eggs
  • Turkey bacon
  • Organic pork bacon or sausage
  • Cottage cheese
  • A simple protein shake with water
  • Nuts and seeds

Consume a Tablespoon of Coconut Oil Once Per Day

Fact: Coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Why?

  • It boosts good cholesterol while simultaneously blocking bad cholesterol buildup
  • It’s special fats promote burning of fat, more energy, and healthy weight
  • It fights aging and keeps you looking and feeling younger
  • It’s antibacterial
  • It improves memory — even for those suffering from Alzheimer’s
  • It’s a testosterone booster and helps to maintain healthy hormones

Finally, it’s a healthy alternative to caffeine, as it provides a shot of energy without side effects. Which brings us to our next point…

It’s Time to Give up Caffine

Our culture is absolutely saturated with the chemical, as we can find coffee and soda in almost any building we inhabit. For many, it’s hard to think of a life without caffeine. Actually. we’ve become so dependent on caffeine that we use it to simply get back to our highest functioning state — not to function better.

Michael Singer argues that your energy should come from within — from your why — in his book, The Untethered Soul. Science prevails again, and the studies show that intrinsic motivation trumps extrinsic motivation every day of the week.

To avoid withdrawal headaches — which are mostly placebo — replace your caffeine with something else (another placebo). After a few days without caffeine, you’ll develop confidence in your ability to function without it.

Go ahead. Give up caffeine and see what happens.

These 3 dietary changes have the power to radically affect your perception and your reality. You can learn more about diet changes, and so much more, in my book Train Your Brain For Success, available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!

Feed Your Brain For Success
by On August 15, 2016

We’ve been taught for years that your mind and your brain are much like a muscle. The better you exercise and feed it, the stronger it gets and the longer it stays healthy. There’s an enormous body of research that now explains why and how this works. Here we’ll discuss 5 foods that have a positive impact on your brain health.

FISH

Salmon, mackerel, tuna, and other fish are rich in brain-healthy omega 3 fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega- 3 fatty acids are important to your brain because they essentially insulate the electrical circuitry in your brain.

NUTS & SEEDS

90% of Americans are not consuming the recommended amount of vitamin E, a vitamin that corresponds with less cognitive decline as we get older. Being so, doctors suggest implementing a higher amount of nuts and seeds into your diet, which contain high levels of the vitamin. Sunflower seeds, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and nut butters such as peanut butter and almond butter are all awesome sources of vitamin E and should be added to your diet on a daily basis.

AVOCADOS

Avocados get a lot of flack simply because they’re high in calories and fat. However, they’re high in monounsaturated fat, which contributes to healthy blood flow. Healthy blood flow equates to a healthy brain! Adding just 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 an avocado to one of your meals as a side dish should be enough for your brain to absorb the effects.

BLUEBERRIES

This fruit is so important for your brain, that many doctors have started calling them “Brainberries”. Researchers have done studies that show blueberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. Similar studies have shown that aging rats that have been fed blueberries have significantly improved both their learning capacity and motor skills, making them mentally equivalent to much younger rats.

BEANS

“Beans, beans, good for your heart. The more you eat the..better your brain also feels?” Beans are great. They stabilize glucose levels. The brain is dependent on glucose for fuel. However, the brain is incapable of storing the glucose so it relies on the constant stream of energy that the beans provide. Most beans will get the job done, but doctors have especially suggested lentils and black beans.

There you have it. 5 foods that you can start adding to your diet today to start feeling the impact on your mental health. You can learn more about these, and so much more, in my book “Train Your Brain For Success”, available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!

Average Sucks. Learn to be Great.
by On August 8, 2016

If I had to guess, I would say that you’re a dreamer. That you spend your days with your mind in the clouds imagining what it would be like if you had the kind of money needed to own yachts, private planes, and homes in multiple cities or even continents. You don’t want to be like most people, because you know you’re bigger and better than that. They’re average, and you’re above that. Most people are broke, unhealthy, and with too little time to actually enjoy their lives. They’re certainly not cruising around Croatia with a yacht full of expensive spirits and caviar. However, you have to be aware that your brain and your mind have a lot of unconscious patterns that hold you back. What kind of patterns? Well…

A BIG PART OF YOU WANTS TO BE AVERAGE

I know, say it ain’t so, right? Starting in elementary school, through a combination of education and our brain’s natural urge toward safety, we all developed a strong unconscious desire to be like everyone else around us. We want to fit in. We want to be average. We want to skate through life under the radar, performing just enough to get by but not enough to land ourselves on our own yachts. Average is safe, but how safe is average really?

WHAT DOES AVERAGE LOOK LIKE IN AMERICA?

Here’s a portrait of the average American:
Physically – 68 percent of Americans 20 and over are overweight. 34 percent are clinically obese. This average gets worse every year, year after year.
Relationships – Over half of marriages in the United States end in a divorce, a statistic that’s held for more than a quarter century.
Professionally – Somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of Americans actively dislike their jobs.
Financially – The average income in America hovers around $40,000, less than in the 1940s when adjusted for inflation. The average American saves less than $2,000 per year. Do the math: It means they can retire around age 96. Look around, and you’ll see that at least half of American households regularly struggle with “too much month at the end of money”.

SETTLING FOR AVERAGE IS SELLING YOURSELF SHORT

Looking at those statistics now, do you still think you want to be just average? Or are you going to seize the moment, promise yourself that you will never turn into the person listed above, and start training your brain for success TODAY? In our book, Train Your Brain For Success, you are going to learn some fundamental principles…principles that have been proven over literally thousands of years to help individuals and organizations see consistent upward growth in every area. Professionally, Financially, Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually, and in all types of relationships. The greatest thing about success? IT’S SIMPLE. Not easy, but simple. Learn these fundamentals and apply them diligently, and you definitely will achieve the things you want.

Top 4 Ways to Train Your Brain For Success
by Roger On July 26, 2016

If an article like this attracted your attention, I’m sure you’re no stranger to the idea that your mind creates your life- in fact, it’s likely that you’ve heard sayings like “you become what you think about,” “what the mind of man can conceive, it can achieve,” “what you think about, you bring about” and countless others- and you probably believe them. Guess what? Me too! My clients and I have built super profitable businesses, successful careers, sizable fortunes and wonderful lives by harnessing the power of their thinking. Truly, the single greatest gift we’ve been given as humans is the ability to choose our thoughts, direct our actions and thereby harness the creative capacity of what’s happening between our ears.

But do you really know how to train your brain to make it work for you? Do you have the ability to consistently keep your focus clear, your thoughts positive and your energy level high? Or are you one of the masses who are constantly distracted, overwhelmed and exhausted? The good news is that if you’ll get a little better at these 5 things, you’ll automatically cause your brain get you better results.

CREATE CLEAR GOALS THAT GIVE YOU ENERGY

Your brain is a lot like a GPS. It does a miraculous job of getting you where you want to go, but only if you give it an exact destination. One thing we know about your subconscious is that it thinks in pictures. In fact, all it knows to do is to see a picture and make you move toward it…if that picture is clear. So be specific in telling your brain what you want. A goal of “make more money” carries only a fraction of the power that “earn $100,000 or better” does. Your brain can’t see the first one, so it can’t harness its full power. Be clear in your intentions, be specific in your aims, and your brain will more automatically pull you forward faster.

PLAN YOUR WEEK RIGHT

Most people show up to work on Monday and either wonders what they should be doing or immediately start putting out fires. Then they do that all day every day until they collapse on Friday. They don’t run their week, their week runs them. Sound familiar? I promise, that’s a recipe for burnout and resentment. No fun. Do your brain a favor- take an hour or two over the weekend to reconnect with your goals and then create a plan for the week. My clients call this the two Hour Solution- there’s a whole chapter in my book about how to do it optimally. If you do ANY version of this however, it’s shocking. You’ll sleep better, you’ll immediately become 2-3x more productive, and you’ll actually find that you have more energy at the end of the day than at the beginning.

START YOUR DAY IN AN UNSTOPPABLE WAY

How do you spend the first 30-60 minutes of your day? For most, it’s jump (or drag yourself) out of bed after hitting the snooze alarm at least twice, and from there it’s a period of more stress, anxiety, rushing, and dread. It’s problematic because this period – the first 30 to 60 minutes you’re awake- sets the tone for your entire day. Psychologically, neurologically, and energetically, what happens in the first half hour of your morning will stick with you whether you like it or not. So make that time sacred. Try getting up 30 minutes earlier than normal- have a little quiet, a little bit of light exercise and maybe even a little reading. I know, what a concept, right? Take a little bit of time early in the day to only build positive energy – the effect of this is immediate and really enjoyable.

INVEST IN YOURSELF

If a farmer plants corn in a field…what grows in that field? Thats right, corn….and weeds. In fact, if left unchecked the weeds will grow so aggressively as to choke out the corn. So that field needs the farmer to systematically, continuously work to keep the weeds out. Your brain is the same way – it needs you to be systematically investing time, energy and money in keeping it clear. The size and nature of that investment depends on your own situation, but your brain needs you to be systematic about caring for it. The farmer needs fertilizer, water and maybe some herbicide. Your brain needs books, audios, other positive people and maybe a coach.

These four tips are a great start for training your brain for success – you’ll find that they work quickly, they work long term, and they overflow to those around you. Try them out, and let me know the results!
